Default 5400 macro question- Does it Work?

I have a new 5400 and even after reading the manual twice I still don't get macro capabiblity as advertised.

Set at full W/A I press the AF button twice until I see the "little flower" green icon. It doesn't focus any closer than normal.

Is this normal?

On ther other hand using the SCENE>MACRO option it works perfectly and focuses very, very close.

Is this just another "loose nut behind the wheel" (operator error)problem?

Any suggestions are appreciated...Henry

If it's anything like the CP4500 (?), getting the little flower symbol is just the start. With the 4500 you then have to zoom in until you are in the zoom range under which the flower turns yellow.
